The main quaility of Linkwitz designs is a constant directivity radiation pattern, leading to a credible recreation of the original recording venue.
Expect continuous surprises listening to your favorite music, since the revelatory capacity of Linkwitz loudspeakers seems neverending.
»I don't really believe in magic, but this is the closest I've heard to real music from a recording. «
Every piece on it is there because it is necessary, nothing more and nothing less. It is the desideratum for form follows function.
The drivers employed are tailored exactly to their duty. World renowned SEAS company from Norway took the challenge to implement Linkwitz´ exact and demanding specifications.
Aside that, every driver is directly hooked to its dedicated power amplifier, avoiding passive crossover networks.
The audible result is extremely fast transients, very low non-linear distortion, tremendous dynamic range and a very high damping factor to keep driver's displacements in absolute control. A true loudspeaker departure from conventionalisms.
Proved microphone techniques let the acoustic space to be recorded. How? Through the concert hall reflections when music is played. This valued information is encoded in the recording and they are there waiting to be deciphered by a true constant directivity
loudspeaker, at your home. When this happily happens, a magical trick in you brain occurs: music decompound into musicians, soloist, singers, percusionists, groups, individually distributed along the available space at your listening room, way behind your Linkwitz Lab loudspeakers.
»You have to make a slight mental effort to be aware that the speakers are actually there! It’s uncanny. «
The radiation pattern is figure of eight, which means that a null is obtained in the perpendicular plane and thus securing minimum interference with side walls and also floor and ceiling. Even a more important derivation from the figure of eight radiation pattern is that the room receives an
even timbre sound, both at front and back, allowing large wall reflections soundwaves to be tonally very similar all along the room. This is also fundamental for taking advantage from the Precedence Effect when the loudspeakers are optimally positioned in the room.
